Biography

I research in a number of areas such as school health promotion, physical activity and exercise and sports science. My current research is investigating adolescent girls disengagment with physical activity. I am also working with masters athletes conduting a range of max and sub-max fitness tests and metabolic measurements testing fitness levels. I have strong ties with Surf Life-Saving SA and their High Performance Surf Sport program. I conduct nutrition workshops for primary school children; challenging the model of intergenerational health. I continue to have a strong research link with school canteens. As an Assoc Prof in the Bachelor of Health Sciences, I teach in a variety of areas which provides students with the skills necessary to work within a multidisciplinary environment.
